Wisconsin native named 2006 Outstanding Young Alumnus

Nice to see a paralegal’s hard work get recognized:

"A Fond du Lac native and legal-support leader for a Cleveland law firm is among four University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh alumni who have won the 2006 Outstanding Young Alumni Award.

"Michael Hammarlund, a native of Fond du Lac now living in Rocky River, Ohio, earned his degree in international studies and political science at UW-Oshkosh in 1994.

"The Outstanding Young Alumni Award [scroll down for Michael’s bio] recognizes the professional accomplishments and future promise of alumni who graduated in the past 15 years.

"Hammarlund is a legal assistant for Thompson Hine in Cleveland, where he is part of a legal team involved in complex litigation in high-profile corporate cases concerning federal and international regulations and intellectual property rights in firms around the globe.


"Hammarlund recently became the supervisor of legal support for the firm, overseeing 85 paralegals and legal researchers who support 370 lawyers."

Too bad the firm doesn’t post paralegal or top staff bios….
